Trends in human evolution, Biology

Before we further proceed to discuss the fossil history of the humans we shall briefly look into what distinguishes humans or genus Homo from his ancestors namely the apes. These differences are clearly indicative of the trends in human evolution which are to a certain extent supported by the available fossil evidence. Is it possible to specify certain criteria for assigning an organism to the family hominidae and the genus Homo? The answer to this question will also indicate certain definite trends in human evolution.
